    Hi all, I have created a root account and a another account with limited permissions . is it possible to start a application (for istance downloading a flie ) as root and then log out ,sign in as user with limited permissions without interrupting the application ?
    ( What i trying to find is if i am able to put a process in "backgroung" a term commonly used in Unix systems and then log as another user?)

    You might start the download process from the user account with a "run as" and use the admin credentials to invoke that job. You shouldn't have to change accounts...
